Statements by an almost 4 year old

Me and my little weirdy

My sister has a boyfriend who is on the high school wrestling team. She and my supportive mom were going to one of his wrestling matches and I asked if Jack could go along. I knew Jack would love something like that. Anything that has to do with "getting the guys" speaks to his heart.

During the match, Jack was really into it. He was cheering and yelling and enjoying the dramatics. At one point he yelled,

"Get him or Jesus will kill you!!!"

The whole concept of religion and how is plays a part in our lives is something Jack is starting to grasp, in the weirdest ways.

my five year old said a couple nights ago, my five year old said, "I have faith in Jesus . . . and in santa claus . . . and in Barack Obama" Religion is all a little blurry . . .

LOL! Aw, man I wish I could have seen everyone's reaction! Kids they do say the darnest things!

So how did you guys explain to Jack that in this particular case Jesus wasn't going to get him, "he who did not pin his opponent" him? LOL, did that make sense?
